Yoni Tantra

The Yoni Tantra is a religious text from Bengal (11th century or earlier) mainly concerned with describing the Yoni Puja, or "Mass of the Vulva"; one of the secret and esoteric Tantric rituals dedicated to creating - and consuming - the sacred fluid which is called yonitattva.
According to this text, sexual union (maithuna) is an indispensable part of Tantric ritual and may be performed by and with women between the age of twelve and sixty years, married or not, except for a girl not yet menstruating. The text specifies nine types of women (navakanya) who may perform sexual rituals, yet explicitly forbids an incestuous mother/son constellation.
In general, however, this Tantra does not impose many restrictions on the practitioner (sadhaka) who is dedicated to the Yoni Puja. It advocates use of the five makara and leaves the choice of partner, place and time very much up to the practitioner. Nevertheless, the male sadhaka is explicitly admonished "never to ridicule a yoni" and to treat all women well and never to be offensive toward them.
In the accompanying two quotes, it becomes clear just why the text bears its name, showing that the yoni is truly the center of worship. The text also outlines a specific topography of the yoni with ten subdivisions, most of which are associated with one of the Mahavidyas, ten important Indian goddesses.

IntroductionThis translation of the Yoni Tantra is a revised version ofthe edition published in 1980, and is specifically publishedfor the Worldwide Tantra Series.Many Western commentators have alleged that the‘‘secret sËdhana’’ was veiled by a twilight language, butthe Yoni Tantra explodes this myth. Kaulas were theunlikeliest folk to mince words and the consumption ofthe yoni tattva----a mixture of menses and semen----is heredescribed in the clearest of terms.Whilst ritual sexual intercourse is often alluded to inKaula and ÉrÌ tantras, there are only a few of these inwhich yoni tattva is mentioned. Yoni Tantra could bedescribed as a eulogy of the yoni and the yoni tattva.As long ago as 1913, some details relating to this matterwere published in Arthur Avalon’s Hymn to Kali(Luzac,1913). The matter was obviously held to be highly sensitiveand parts of a commentary relating to consumption of theyoni tattva are left untranslated.The first English reference to the consumption of mensesand semen seems to be in the Indian magazine Values,Vol XIX No 5. In an article entitled The Occult World ofa Tantrik Guru, by a representative of the Uttara Kaulasampradaya, this matter is discussed clearly and unequivo-cally.Other English books have been discovered relating tothis subject. The first is Elizabeth Sharpe’s Secrets of theKaula Circle(Luzac 1936), a factional account, which,while not spelling out the dark details, neverthelessshowers hints and tips on the reader.Kenneth Grant, in his Aleister Crowley and the HiddenGod(Muller Ltd) refers to the process in oblique and
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 4
mysterious ways, relating the process to Aleister Crowley’smembership of the masonic group Ordo Templi Orientis.Crowley, in his Confessions(Cape, 1968) alludes to thismatter, saying: ‘‘The OTO is in possession of one supremesecret.’’From Crowley’s diaries, it is evident that the secret herefers to is the consumption of the yoni tattva. The Germanfounders of the Ordo Templi Orientis claimed to haveIndian or tantrik gurus, but it is impossible to prove thislink.It is, however, not impossible that the works of Sir JohnWoodroffe (Arthur Avalon) were the main inspiration ofCrowley’s ‘‘supreme secret’’. It is certainly quite extraor-dinary that Crowley never mentions the books of JohnWoodroffe, although it is certain he must have known ofthem.The earliest reference to yoni tattva in Kaula tantraseems to be in the Kaulajnananirnayaof Matsyendranath(Prachya Prakashan, Benares, 1986):----‘‘In Kaula Agama, the five pure and eternal substancesare ash, wife’s nectar, semen, menstrual blood and gheemixed together¼In occasional rites and in acts of KamaSiddhi, the great discharge is without doubt and mostcertainly what one should do in Kaula Agama.¼Oneshould always consume the physical blood and semen.Dearest One, this is the oblation of the Yoginis and theSiddhas’’. (KJN, Patala 8)‘‘A brahmin goes to heaven by endless washing of thefeet and mouth, whereas a person repeatedly making aforehead mark of Kunda, Gola or Udbhava menses destroysvarious ailments such as leprosy and smallpox and is freefrom all disease in the same way that a serpent sloughs itsskin.’’ (ibid, Patala 8)2The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 5
‘‘Blood is the female (Vama) elixir. Mixed with wineand semen, it is the Absolute.’’ (ibid, Patala 18)Other Kaula tantras deal with the subject of menstrualblood in very plain terms. Matrikabheda Tantra(SothisWeirdglow 1983) describes the different types:----‘‘ÉrÌ Éankara said: The firs menses appearing in awoman who has lost her virginity is Svayambhu blood. Ina maiden born of a married woman and begotten by anotherman, that which arises is Kunda menses, the substancecausing the granting of any desire. DeveÚÌ, a maidenbegotten by a widow gives rise to Gola menses, whichsubdues gods. The menses arising in the first period aftera virgin becomes a married woman is the all bewilderingSvapushpa.’’ (MT, Patala 8)The very first chapter of the MT mentions a substancecalled sambal, described in the commentary as a woman’smenstrual discharge. This substance allows the tantrikadept to perform various sorts of alchemical operations.Vajrayana is a cult of Tibetan lamaism. In the Candama-harosana Tantra (Harvard Oriental Series, 1976), the LordChandamaharoshana says:----‘‘Optionally, the yogin may secrete or not secrete, havinghis mind solely on pleasure. If he does, he should lick theLotus, on his knees. And he should eat with his tonguethe white and red of the Lotus. And he should inhale itthrough a pipe in the nose, to increase his power.’’ (CT,6, 150)Many points of contact exist between the texts of theVajrayana and Indian Kaula cults. Matsyendranath, authorof the KJN, is also, according to some accounts, the founderof both Vajrayana and Kaula traditions. He is also thehuman progenitor of the NËtha traditions.A Tantra of the Left Current3

The Kaulavali Nirnaya(Agamanusandhana Samiti, Cal-cutta nd), edited by Sir John Woodroffe, is a digest ofother Kaula tantras. Summarising chapter 18, Sir Johnparaphrases the tantra:----‘‘¼there are people who regard semen and menstrualfluid with disgust, but they forget that the body by whichthey hope to attain Liberation is composed of these twoforms of matter, that the marrow, bone and tendons havecome from the father and the skin, flesh and blood fromthe mother. It further says that there is no reason for man’sdisgust for excreta or urine, for these are nothing but foodor drink which has undergone some change and containsliving creatures and the Brahman substance is not absenttherefrom¼All things are pure. It is one’s mentality whichis evil.’’ (KN, introduction, pp19-20)SvecchacharaThis Sanskrit word means a spiritual state in which anindividual may act according to her or his own will. Asshe or he is Éiva incarnate, there can be no morality, butonly freedom from the rules of the pasu or herd-personwho is fettered by the mind:----Bhairava said: Listen, VÌra CËmuÙdË, to the charac-teristics of vessels and the way of acting. One may be likea child, a madman, a king, like one in a swoon, like anindependent spirit, like a Lord Hero, a Gandharva, a nakedperson, a Tridandin or like one teaching knowledge forgain. The way to be is to act however one wills.’’ (KJN,Patala 8)The Yoni Tantra advocates Svecchachara in Patala 7,stating that the ordinary rules for worship are suspendedfor one following Mahachina practice. This ‘‘Mahachina’’is often encountered in tantrik texts----it seems to refer to4The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 7
the regions bordering Tibet and China. A person followingthis path is free of all distinctions, as she or he is one withÉiva and Éakti, acting according to will.Svecchachara is the way of the Avadhuta, a spiritualperson beyond any qualifications or distinctions. The typeand symbol of the Avadhuta is the guru figure of India,Shri Dattatreya. The Avadhuta is always in a blissful state,one with the Absolute. According to Sir John Woodroffein his introduction to the KN:----‘‘It is very difficult for anyone to know his true nature.When alone he is like one mad, dumb or paralysed andwhen in the society of men he sometimes behaves like agood man, sometimes like a wicked one, and on occasionshe behaves like a demon. But the Yogi is always purewhatever he may do and by his touch everything becomespure.’’ (introduction, p22)These descriptions echo the mala or chain mantra ofDattatreya, in which he is described as ‘‘Madman, Child,Devil’’. In the Avadhuta Upanishad(Sannyasa Upan-ishads, Adyar 1978), Dattatreya is questioned by Samk-riti:----‘‘Venerable Lord, who is an Avadhuta? What is hiscondition? What is his characteristic? What is his worldlyexistence? (Dattatreya then replies) The Avadhuta is socalled as he has discarded worldly ties, and he is the essenceof the sentence ’Thou art That’¼His worldly existenceconsists in moving about freely, with or without clothes.For them there is nothing righteous or unrighteous, nothingholy or unholy.’’ (pp 1-3)‘‘For him there is no such thing as sin or virtue. Theethical system of sin and virtue is to protect the minds ofthe worldly, since the mind is the measure of all thingsand all things last only a moment.’’ (CT 8,60)A Tantra of the Left Current5
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Again in the text of the NËtha Siddhas:----"Bad smells and perfumes one should sense as equal.Just as a lotus petal in water is without stain, so a Yogi isunmarred by merit or sin. In one in whom this mentaldisposition has blossomed there is no difference betweenkilling a Brahmin or the Ashvamedha sacrifice, nor is thereany difference between bathing in all the sacred waters orcontact with barbarians.’’ (KJN, Patala 8)Reverence for WomenThe Kaulas regarded female gurus very highly and therewere many examples of yoginis or female tantriks. In YoniTantra Patala 7 we find:----‘‘Women are divinity, women are life, women are trulyjewels.’’This sentiment is echoed in many other tantras such asÉakti Sangama Tantra, DevÌrahasyaand elsewhere. Awoman is the goddess:----‘‘Worship carefully a woman or a maiden as she is Éakti,sheltered by the Kulas. One should never speak harshly tomaidens or women.’’ (KJN, Patala 23)‘‘In Kaula every woman is thought of as a manifestationof the Goddess. No man may raise his hand, strike orthreaten a woman. When she is naked, men must kneeland worship her as the Goddess. She has equal rights withmen on all levels.’’ (Occult World of a Tantrik Guru,ValuesVol.IX)In both Kulachudamani Tantraand the Brihad NilaTantra, the Kaula is instructed to recite a mantra inwardlywhenever he sees a woman.‘‘Women are heaven; women are dharma; and womenare the highest penance. Women are Buddha; women are6The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 9
the Sangha; and women are the perfection of Wisdom.’’(CT 8,30)KËmarÍpaThe Yoni Tantra hails from Cooch Bihar (Kocha), butmany of the Kaula Tantras originate from KËmarÍpa. InPuranic legend, this is the place where the yoni of DevÌfell to earth after the Goddess’ body was sliced into 50segments by the discus of ViÚÙu.Matsyendranath----founder of Kaula and NËtha schools----expounded the Kaula Shastra at KËmarÍpa. The famoustemple at Gauhati is celebrated. The KamarupÌ is hymnedin the Kalika Puranaand in very many other Vama andKaula tantras.‘‘It is said that female sadhvikas knowing yoga dwellat KËmakhyË PÌtha. If one joins with one of these, oneobtains Yogini Siddhi.’’ (KJN, Patala 16)The Ten MahËvidyËsThese are listed in the third patala of Yoni Tantra as KËlÌ,TËrË, Sodasi, Chinnamastaka, Bhagalamukhi, Matangi,Bhuvaneshvari, Mahalakshmi and associated with thedifferent parts of the yoni. This list of the Mahavidyasdiffers from that in Todala Tantra(Sothis Weirdglow1984).Transliteration of Sanskrit terms in this work follow theaccepted international standard.A Tantra of the Left Current7

First PatalaSeated on the peak of Mount Kailasha, the god of gods,the guru of all creation, was questioned by DÍrgË-of-the-Smiling-Face, Naganandini.Lord, 64 tantras have been created. Tell me, Ocean ofCompassion, about the chief of these.MahËdeva said: Listen, dearest PËrvatÌ, to this greatsecret. You have asked to hear this 10 million times.Beauteous One, it is because of your feminine nature thatyou continually ask me.You should conceal this by every effort. PËrvatÌ, thereis mantra pÌtha, yantra pÌtha and yoni pÌtha. Amongst these,the chief is certainly the yoni pÌtha, revealed to you fromaffection.Naganandini, listen closely! Hari, Hara and BrahmË----the gods of creation, maintenance and destruction----alloriginate in the yoni.A person should not worship the yoni if he does nothave the Éakti mantra. This initiation and mantra is thedeliverer from hell.I am MÎtyunjaya, beloved of your yoni. Surasundari, Ialways worship DÍrgË in my heart lotus. This liberates themind from distinctions such as Divya and vÌra. O LadyGoddess! worshipping in this manner, liberation is placedwithin a person’s reach.A yoni worshipper should prepare the Éakti mantra. Hegains wealth, poesy, wisdom and omniscience. He becomesthe four-faced BrahmË for one hundred million aeons.What is the use of talking! To speak of this avails naught.If a person worships with menstrual flowers, he also haspower over fate. Doing much pÍja in this way, he maybecome liberated.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The devotee should place a Éakti in a circle. She shouldbe wanton, beautiful, devoid of shame and disgust, charm-ing by nature, supremely alluring and beautiful. Aftergiving her vijaya, the devotee should worship her withutmost devotion.He should place her on his left, and should worship herhair-adorned yoni. At the edges of the yoni, the devoteeshould place sandal and beautiful blossoms. There, indraw-ing the goddess, he should do jiva nyËsa using mantra,having given her wine and drawing a half-moon usingvermilion. After smearing sandal on her forehead, thedevotee should caress her breasts.After reciting the mantra for 108 times, while in herarms, the devotee should caress the breasts, having pre-viously kissed her on the cheek. The mantra should berecited 108 or 1008 times in the yoni circle.After reciting the mighty mantra, he should recite thehymn very devotedly.At the time of worship, the guru should not be present.I am the worshipper. If the guru is present, there is nofruit, there is absolutely no doubt of it.The worshipper, using great efforts, should make theresults of the pÍja over to the guru. After making threeofferings of hands full with flowers, he should bow againto his own guru. The wise man should, by every means,offer to his guru----putting the hands together in the signof obeisance.After performing yoni pÍja using these methods, thedevotee attains whatever is desired----there is no doubt ofit. The fruit of doing pÍja to the great yoni, deliverer fromthe ocean of misery, is life and enhanced vitality. A Tantra of the Left Current9

Second PatalaDevÌ said: God of Gods, NËtha1of all the cosmos, causeof creation, maintenance and destruction, without you thereis no father, just as without me there is no mother. Youhave spoken of the ultimate way of yoni pÍja throughsexual intercourse. Which types of yoni should be wor-shipped and which bring good fortune?The devotee should worship the mother’s yoni and haveintercourse with all yonis. He may have intercourse withany woman between the ages of twelve and sixty.He should worship the yoni daily, using the five tattvas.By seeing the yoni, he gains the merit of bathing at tenthousand tirthas.The forehead mark should be made from yoni tattva,and dress should be of the Kaula type. The type of materialused for sitting and the worship itself should be of theKula form.Firstly, in intercourse, the purified worshipper shoulddraw the Éakti to himself by her hair and should place hisliÔga into her hand. The liÔga pÍja and the yoni pÍja shouldbe performed according to the injunctions. Beloved One,red powder and sandal should be smeared on the liÔga.The liÔga should be inserted into the yoni and thereshould be vigorous intercourse. He who uses this methodattains the highest essence. A devotee should worship withthe yoni tattva, of the form of yoni, the deluder of theworld, at night when it is full moon, at a crossroads.After going to a cremation ground, offering cooked fish,milk, food and meat, he becomes like Kubera, the god ofwealth.A yantra of yoni shape should be drawn on the groundand the mantra recited. O DevÌ, after reading the kavaca,
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 13
a person should recite the 1000 names. He becomes a sonto KËlikË and liberated. Offering meat in a deserted placeand repeating the mantra and the stotra, a man becomes alord of yoga.Having seen the yoni full of menses, after bathing andreciting the mantra 108 times, a person becomes a Éiva onearth. One should recite the mantra after offering bothone’s own semen and the yoni flowers.Cooked fish, egg, mouse flesh, buffalo flesh, humanflesh, wine, meat and ground cereal should be offered atnight.Wherever this great place (of offering) is, therein playsthe great essence. One should be naked, with dishevelledhair, sitting in the pratyalidha posture. At all times andeverywhere, the mantra should be recited when in the greatyoni. One should worship the essence of DevÌ, the Éaktiin the form of a Éakti. Doing thus, a man attains the fouraims of mankind----dharma, artha, kama and moksha.SËdhakas, together at night, should offer using wine andmeat. By all means a sËdhaka should have intercourse inthe yoni, previously caressing the Éakti’s breasts.If intercourse is performed in viparitamode, the Éaktibecomes the Goddess. The sËdhaka becomes instantlyregenerated and fully alive by using the water fromwashing yoni and liÔga.After worshipping the great yoni according to injunction,one should make an offering. The water of the yoni is ofthree types and one should offer it to the Éakti. MahËdevÌ,after mixing the water with wine, a purified sËdhaka shoulddrink it.The supreme woman will be pleased by offering herclothes, perfumes and jewels. Whilst in the yoni, oneA Tantra of the Left Current11
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 14
should worship the vidya, at night, according to the ritualrule.The best of sËdhakas should mix the effusion from yoniand liÔga in water, sipping this amrita, he should nourishhimself with it.12The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 15
Third PatalaGreat Lady, listen very attentively. This should be con-cealed with every effort. Never reveal it! Revealing itcauses loss of siddhi, revealing it causes death. Revealingit destroys mantra. Revealing it may cause one to be tornto pieces.The miraculous Yoni Tattva Tantra is the best of alltantras. Because of love for you, this very hidden tantra isrevealed. The only evil in sexual intercourse is disgust forblood and semen. He who mixes them with wine isdiscriminating in worship.How can one be wicked on account of the Éakti mantra?Having worshipped the great yoni, the sËdhaka should dopÍja with the flesh of goats, sheep, men, deer, mongoose,buffalo, elephants, cows, jackals, lions, horses and tor-toises, in a devotional frame of mind.What point is there of many words? The yoni which hasbled is suitable for worship. Do not worship a yoni whichhas never bled. Worshipping a yoni which has never bledcauses loss of siddhi on every occasion.What can be achieved by men without the five tattvas?All is without result and one may fall into hell and bebaked in pots until the end of time.The sin acquired in a myriad of births is instantlydestroyed if one should worship, offering into the yoniaperture. Combining semen with menses or svayambhumenses and taking this in the hand, carefully offer it intothe Yoni.One becomes KËlikË’s son and renowned. DevÌ is at thebase of the yoni and Naganandini is in the yoni. KËlÌ andTËrË are in the yoni cakra and Cchinnamastaka in the hair.Bagalamukhi and Matangi are on the rim of the yoni.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 16
Mahalakshmi, Shodashi and Bhuvaneshvari are within theyoni. By worshipping the yoni one certainly worshipsÉakti.Worship giving bali of birds and other living creaturesand with blood. For the sËdhaka who says Aim Aim at thetime of worship, the yoni is fortunate and gives bothenjoyment and liberation. A yogin is not a bhogin and abhogin is not a yogin, but if one worships the yoni one isa Kaula, a person who has both yoga and bhoga. Allworship is pointless without worship of the yoni, O DÍrgË.Candali, Lady of Hosts, the foremost one, is the centreof the yoni. By worshipping in this way, one becomes myequal, most certainly.What use are meditations, reciting mantras, giving giftsor kula nectars? O DÍrgË, without yoni worship, all arefruitless.If one is incapable of giving that which should be offeredin my sËdhana, one may, instead, be exclusively devotedto yoni pÍja. A sËdhaka should worship with jewels andclothes. After worshipping the great yoni, then he shouldenter the circle.Prostrating himself like a stick on earth, he should thendisplay the yoni mudrË. DÍrgË becomes pleased with asËdhaka who is devoted to the yoni.What point is there of many words? The yoni which hasbled is suitable for worship. Do not worship a yoni whichhas never bled. Worshipping a yoni which has never bledcauses loss of siddhi on every occasion.14The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 17
Fourth PatalaAll japa and the like is to be done according to the rulesof MahËcina. The nature of yoni worship is thus declaredto you, O DevÌ.Although to be kept secret, it is revealed from love foryou. In the country of Kocha, near Yonigarta, on the westbank of the Ganges is the renowned Madhavi. Going there,one may gain the yoni darshana, O MËheÚvarÌ.O DevÌ, there I became exclusively devoted to yoniworship each night. Practising religious mendicancy, Ialways go there.There is no yoni on earth resembling the beautifullyrounded yoni of Madhavi and the firmness of her breasts.Worshipping this causes Shivoham. Listen, PËrvatÌ!KÎÛÙa, after worshipping RadhË’s yoni, became God KÎÛÙa.ÉrÌ Rama Janaki Nath worshipped Sita’s yoni. KillingRavana and his clan, he then went to Ayodhya City andlived in a beautiful palace there. ViÚÙu, BrahmË, the saintsand I myself all were born from a yoni.What knowledge in the three worlds can match themagnificence of the yoni tattva? DevÌ, without the fivetattvas of wine, meat, fish, grain and intercourse, all isfruitless.Veda is the highest of all things and better than Vedais Vaishnava. Better than Vaishnava is Shaiva and betterthan Shaiva is Dakshina. Greater than Dakshina is Vamaand better than Vama is Siddhanta. Higher than Siddhantais the Kaula who desires the yoni----like a sun shining inthe sky or a veritable Meru to a mustard seed.The pre-eminence of the Kula is lauded in all tantras.By the power of good fortune, one is a knower of Kula.Giving appropriate foods, one should please and worship
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 18
by every means. The best of sËdhakas is exclusivelydevoted to yoni pÍja.One becomes siddha by using this revealed doctrine,there is no doubt. While paÚus speak only of the sexualintercourse of beasts, in the divya temperament there isexclusive devotion to the doctrine of the yoni. Onebecomes pure by making a forehead mark of yoni tattva.In this text, feeding Kumaris and feeding Kulinas arethe two chief things. DÍrgË, there is no doubt of this.Within a Éakta, outwardly a Éaiva, in gatherings aVaiÚÙava----in various forms the Kaulas wander on earth.O Nagandandini, within the family lineage of a thousandgenerations, only a Kulina is pure.Whoever washes the feet of a Kulina purifies home andbody. In whichever country a Kulina lusting after the yoniis born----that place is worshipped by the gods BrahmË,ViÚÙu and Éiva. Giving to a Kulina brings endless gifts inreturn. Offering into the hands of a paÚu is fruitless inevery way.It is impossible for me to speak of the greatness of theKulina! Whoever satisfies a Kulina is liberated by tenmillions Kulas. I bestow grace only through Kula Yoga,this is without doubt. DevÌ, the state of being an Avadhutais the greatest of the four ashramas of humankind.I achieved my status of MahËdeva by Kula Yoga andthrough exclusive devotion to yoni worship. The demonTripura was obliterated in times past by your yoni’s grace.The Pandavas succeeded in battle by worshipping Drau-padi’s yoni.In the absence of the yoni of a maiden or a beautifulwoman, worship the yoni of a sister or of a female pupil.Worship the yoni daily, otherwise pronounce the mantra.Do not perform useless pÍja without yoni pÍja. 16The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 19
Fifth PatalaThe mahËvidyË, mantra and preparation of the mantra donot bestow siddhi without worship of the yoni. One shouldbow thrice before the yoni with a flower, MËheÚvarÌ, elsethe pÍja of a man is useless even in 1000 lifetimes.Guru is clearly Éiva and his partner is the true form (ofthe goddess). A Kaulika goes to hell if he has sexualintercourse with her. The best sort of sËdhaka should haveintercourse with all other yonis. On whoever’s forehead isplaced the yoni tattva, there too are devas, demons, yakÛasand the fourteen worlds.If the twice-born Kulina should recite her mantra duringthe shraddha, his ancestors dwelling in heaven bestowsiddhi. Intoxicated, they laud and hymn his praise.If a sËdhaka should perform sËdhana in a woman’s yoni,all born in her family become knowers of Kaula. A sËdhakashould always meditate on the pure yoni. O MahËdevÌ, oneshould always smear the yoni tattva on the body. If oneshould place one’s liÔga next to her vagina and thenpenetrate, one becomes liberated by ten million Kulas andgains all results.In the mutual friction of the liÔga and yoni is greatsËdhana. The greatest thing in mantra recitation andsËdhana is the outflow of semen and vaginal emission.The powerful sËdhaka, following the rule, should offerthe augmented substance to the yoni region after mixingthe semen and yoni tattva together.From Her lotus feet, (grace) showers down. At the timeof sËdhana, abandon any other method.The wise man, following the rules of KaulaÚastra, shouldcaress that yoni. If one should do pÍja of a mother’s yoni,one should prepare it. After worshipping according to rule,
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 20
one should not have intercourse. One should only couplewith the yoni that bleeds.Dearest, if by good fortune one is partner to a Brahmingirl, one should worship her yoni tattva. Otherwise,worship other yonis.In paÚu initiation without five tattvas, all is fruitless.Resort to a Kulaguru initiating into Éakti by every effort.If a sËdhaka should consume (yoni tattva) whilst onlypaÚu initiated, his initiation and his methods cause blackmagic. Therefore, by every effort, resort to a Kulina Guru.If desiring to do pÍja, resort to a Kulina Guru. Only thendoes a yoni bestow grace----like Sita’s vagina forRamachandra and your yoni for me.If one should worship a hair-adorned yoni, one becomeslike a king. All acts become fruitful, no doubt of it.One becomes very wealthy if marking oneself with aforehead mark of yoni flowers. DevÌ, smeared with red,one dwells in DÍrgË’s paradise.PËrvatÌ said: Ocean of Compassion, by what methodshould the yoni, which is the essence of the cosmos, to beworshipped? If you or a sËdhaka should worship a yoni,how does it bestow grace? Speak of this to me! I want tohear all of this because of my great curiosity.MahËdeva said: A sËdhaka wishing to worship a yoni,which is the form of the cosmos, should cause an erectionand insert it into that thing which is Éakti Herself.The vagina is MahËmËyË and the penis is SadaÚiva.Worshipping them, one becomes liberated while still alive,there is no doubt of it. One should offer bali, flowers andso forth. If incapable of this, worship with wine, O DÍrgË.One should do prËÙËyËma and my six limbed pÍja inthe yoni region. After reciting the mantra 100 times at the18The Yoni Tantra
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 21
base of the yoni, one should rub the liÔga and the yonitogether.I have thereby declared the manner of proceeding forall sËdhakas. DeveÚÌ, never reveal this tantra! Do not giveit to the disciple of another or to the undevoted. MahËdevÌ,the Yoni Tantra is revealed from love for you.A Tantra of the Left Current19

Page 22
Sixth PatalaIf a person should gaze at a yoni while ritually bathing,his life becomes fruitful. There is no doubt of this. Oneshould look at one’s partner’s yoni, at another woman’syoni, the yoni of a maiden----in the absence of a maiden’syoni one should gaze reverentially at the yoni of a pupil.Never worship the yoni in front of pashus. Using theyoni sËdhana method, one definitely becomes like ViÚÙu,of this there is no doubt. Whosoever does this is praisedby the Suras and Asuras in heaven and the underworld.Only one acting with vÌra SËdhana is liberated from sorrow.This well-balanced sËdhana is revealed from love foryou. If a worshipper of the yoni tattva enters a dispute,after conquering all enemies he becomes ultimately victo-rious, DÍrgË. What is the point of bathing in the Ganges?What need is there to resort to sacred places? There isnothing equalling devotion to the yoni. Acting otherwiseis useless.DeveÚÌ, even with my five mouths I am unable to speakof the yoni’s greatness! Listen Naganandini, by grace ofyour yoni I became MahËdeva!Whichsoever sËdhaka should have intercourse in awoman’s yoni becomes liberated from the great miserywhich is the terrible Ocean of Samsara. What need of manywords in this matter? PËrvatÌ-SundarÌ, listen! There isnothing praised in the world more worthy of praise thanthe yoni tattva.DevÌ, without it, how could it be possible for ViÚÙu orÉiva to speak? How could I be capable of anything, OMother DÍrgË? How is it possible for me to describe yourgreat receptacle of riches?

Listen very devotedly. Listen attentively to thatwhich should never be revealed, even at the risk of yourown life. DeveÚÌ, you should always conceal this as if itwere your own yoni.The secret I reveal is true, true, there is no doubt of it.Practising it, one never becomes immersed in the Oceanof Life. The yoni is MahËmËyË herself, the liÔga is theform of SadaÚiva. SundarÌ, offering should be with theireffusion and with wine and flesh.SundarÌ, one should bring together the yoni and the liÔgaand worship the tattva. One should place oneself in thiscertain thing and give everything to Éakti. One shouldsatisfy using the five tattvas in the shape of the vagina,which is the whole universe. DeveÚÌ, if this is revealed,one commits brahmicide.DÍrgË, this sacred trust is known to be of very greatmerit. This sacred trust bestows siddhi and liberation.DeveÚÌ, not knowing this sacred trust, one certainly goesto hell. Yoni sËdhana is the greatest of all sËdhana.If one should worship the yoni after enjoying anddrinking, one is freed from the sins of ten million births,which are instantly destroyed.Liberation is achieved through enjoyment. Happiness isgained through enjoyment. Therefore, by every effort, asËdhaka should become an enjoyer. The wise man shouldalways avoid blame, disgust or shame of the yoni.

Dearest, in this matter relating to a powerfulsËdhaka always worshipping the vagina, what use is thereof many words?Listen, O One-dear-to-me-as-life-itself, this sËdhana ofsËdhakas is the best of all methods. Unless one uses allfive tattvas and not just four, all is fruitless. Unless thefifth is included, one is not a Éakta having both happinessand liberation. Unless one uses the wine of Éakti, allbecomes fruitless.The leftovers of both the Éakti and the vÌra should bedrunk. After doing thus, and always worshipping theMahayoni, having enjoyed and having drunk, one shouldeat within the circle. One should take a tulsi rosary andrecite mantra in a Hari templeAfter reciting mantra and various legends and lesserstories, one should then recite the great stories of ÉrÌ Hari.Hari is described as being the sum-total of all existence.One should slay beasts in that place.

Seventh PatalaMaheÚËni, now I will speak of the ultimate vÌra sËdhana.Whichever sËdhaka knows this becomes liberated whilststill living. The essence of the Divya is divinity, the chiefelement in a vÌra is strong-mindedness.Wherever a vÌra lives, that country is worshipped by thegods. By seeing a vÌra, one gains the fruit of bathing inten million tirthas. Offering water into a vÌra’s hand, onebecomes liberated by a host of Kulas.If one should please a vÌra, what is there which cannotbe attained in the three worlds? The time when VÌras recitemantra is better than any other time.The best sËdhakas should recite mantra within the yoniat a place where there is a Éiva LiÔga, at the root of abilva, in the cremation ground, at an isolated spot or in ahouse. The best of all food to use for worship is that fillingthe Éakti’s womb. DevÌ, unless wine and flesh are used,one dies swiftly.Therefore, after eating and drinking, one should thenconsume (yoni tattva). Of all food, this is the food whichshould be worshipped fearlessly. MaheÚËni, sexual inter-course in every kind of yoni is widely praised. One shouldalways smear a line of menstrual blood or sandal paste orsemen on the forehead. For VÌras, this is the core of truebliss.Now I speak of the sËdhana giving results above everyother kind of sËdhana. When bathing and so forth, forpurification, summons, recitation, pÍja, mental worship andoblation any time is good. There is no such thing as aninauspicious time. It makes no difference whether it benight or day, the 14th day of the waning moon or thetwilight time. In the matter of robes, seat, place, house,

bodily contact and so forth, maintain internal purity. Oneshould not be dualistic here.There are no rules relating to direction, time or place.There are no restrictions on the best time for recitation ofa mantra, the time for worship or rules relating to bali.One should never make distinctions relating to womenand should refrain from dualism in the sËdhana of women.A sËdhaka should go to a woman and should touch andlook at her. After feeding her, one should recite the mantraand consume the substance according to one’s desire. Thusare declared the characteristics in acts of vÌra SËdhanaaccording to Svecchachara.Women are divine, women are life, women are trulyjewels. Always have intercourse with a woman andmeditate, whether she be one’s own woman or not. Thatwhich has been revealed to you is the whole essence hiddenin all tantra. The injunction relating to vÌra Siddhi has beenrevealed from love for you.At the time of consuming the substance, one shouldfirstly offer it to one’s Éakti. Otherwise, one may first castwater into the vagina. The sËdhaka, going to a desertedcremation ground, should have sexual intercourse with hisÉakti after enjoying food and reciting the mantra.Parvati, now listen to the time when the semen-mensesis emitted. If one should worship the yoni tattva, makinga forehead mark with it, all defects and evils of a hundredbirths are immediately destroyed.A mantrin should recite in an old house, in a place whereghosts abound or in a deserted place. At the risk of one’slife, never reveal it to pashus! VÌra SËdhana is vain withoutwine and useless without sexual union. DÍrgË, if a vÌradoes not use the five tattvas, he fails on this planet. Forthis reason, after eating and drinking, the mantrin should24The Yoni Tantra

recite the great mantra. Dearest Goddess, this VÌra SËdhanais the best of all sËdhanas.What point is there of 100,000 acts of Divya or vÌraSËdhana? What point to 100 million recitations of mantraor 100 ritual preparations of the mantra? What use is therein resorting to 100,000 tirthas? What point is there to giftsor self mortification?MaheÚËni, without vagina, all these are equally fruitless!Employing Yoni PÍja, one attains a share of all sËdhana.By yoni tattva oblation, the ancestors reside in paradise.One should always caress a nubile yoni. If one shoulddivert oneself in the urgent dance after preparing the cavityof the great yoni, then one is freed from all defects andstains of all births by the hosts of Kulas.If a devoted person of contemplative mind shouldspecifically worship the virgin yoni of a beautiful femalepupil with scent and flower, having enjoyed happiness hereon earth, afterwards he dwells in DevÌ Loka.In the absence of scent and flower, one should do thesËdhana with wine. DeveÚÌ, at the pÍja time he should doViÚÙu sËdhana, ViÚÙu nyËsa and then recite praise.A Tantra of the Left Current25
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Page 28
Eighth PatalaThe Kaulika NËtha, at the time of worship, knows (hisÉakti) to be Urvashi, who is woman kind in the threeworlds. Without sexual union there is never liberation,whether from shastras, shrutis, smriti, puranas etc createdby me. Listen, O one-dear-to-me-as-life, of the destructionof the mental predisposition of pashus. Worship a nubileyoni in a highly ecstatic way.Whosoever in this Kali Yuga recites mantra in asupremely devoted way specifically to the yoni, the coreof the universe, is within reach of liberation.Amongst thousands of sËdhakas and tens of millions ofworshippers, fortunate are they who do KËlÌ sËdhana. KËlÌis the Mother of the Universe and of all shastra, quitecertainly. Remembering KËlÌ frees one from the fetters ofa paÚu.After reciting KËlÌ’s great mantra, one becomes KËlÌ’sson, there is no doubt. This is true, true, true, true withoutquestion.Just as for KËlÌ, so also for the vidyas and rules ofTripurË, Shodashi, Bhuvaneshvari, China-Tara, Mahalak-shmi, Matangi, Sundari, Bhairavi, Dakshina and Tarini.Success cannot be achieved save with the method ofChinachara.Whatever mantra one is initiated into, this is the bestmethod. Devoid of this sacred trust, one becomes unsuc-cessful and therefore is reborn again.That which is written in this Yoni Tantra all sËdhakasshould accomplish according to their own wills.MaheÚËni, meditate as being absorbed in the yoni cakra,with yoni on the tongue, yoni in the mind, yoni in the earsand yoni in the eyes.

Introduction to the Introduction to the Yoni Tantra
Soror Filiae Chaosiae

Dearest Ones, the Toni Tantra flew into my temple early one morning as I practised my solo oblations. It's eight sweet patalas surrounded me and sang, successively, their particular and pungent songs. The tune was so familiar. Maybe you will find it to be sweet as well. Printed here for your researching pleasure is Lokanath's introduction which is chock fall of tasty literary and publishing reference. We will print the translation of the Toni Tantra in it's entirety over the course of the next four issues of the SL, which will be Vol. 3, one of my favorite one digit numbers (actually, they're all good and much the same, but that issue has been adequately covered elsewhere) and a remarkably appropriate one for this particular piece of work. If you just can't wait all year to read the Tantra, or if serialisation drives you to distraction, you can send me $2—or better yet, something interesting to read pertaining to sex and immortality and I will send you a copy. So it's not free; but it is easy. What I'm really looking for is source material, but sometimes those anecdotal accounts and magical records make for fascinating reading. So send them along to me!


INTRODUCTION
written by Sri Lokanath Maharaj, London, 1984

This translation of the Yoni Tantra1 is a revised version of the serialised translation published in Azoth Magazine numbers 16-19. That translation used the Sanskrit text of Yoni Tantra edited by J.S. Schoeterman and published by Manohar in 1980.

For reasons probably of 'delicacy' Schoeterman did not issue a translation of the text with his edition. But there is an excellent introduction dealing with the texts he used and other topics relating to Kulachara2.

The statements by many Western commentators that the 'secret sadhana'3 was hidden by an allusive style are completely exploded by Yoni Tantra. Kaulas4 were never prone to mince words and the consumption of Yoni Tattva—the mixture of menses and semen—is described in the clearest of terms in Yoni Tantra.

While ritual sexual intercourse is often alluded to in Kaula and Shri Tantras there are only a few places where the Yoni Tattva5 is referred to. The chief of these is Yoni Tantra, which could be described as a eulogy of the Yoni and the Yoni Tattva.


The Yoni Tattva

As long ago as 1913 some details relating to this matter were published by Arthur Avalon in his 'Hymn to Kali' (Luzac 1913). Unfortunately, it was obviously felt to be too sensitive a matter and Sir John left un-translated the crucial parts of the commentary which deal with consumption of Yoni Tattva.

The first reference to the consumption of menses and semen in English I have come across is in the Indian magazine Values, Vol. XIX No. 5. In an article called “The Occult World of a Tantrick Gum” by a living representative of the Uttara Kaula and Adinath Sampradayas, Shri Gurudeva Mahendranath, this matter is discussed plainly.

In the course of research into this subject other English books have been discovered which deal (with) this subject. The first of these is Elizabeth Sharpe's Secrets of the Kaula Circle, (Luzac 1936), a factional [sic] account which, while not spelling out what was involved in the process gave dark hints.

The earliest references to Yoni Tattva in Kaula Tantras seems to be in the Kaula Jnana Nimay of Matsyendranath (AMMOOKOS 1984):

"In Kaula Agama the 5 pure and eternal substances are ashes, wife's nectar, semen, menstrual blood and ghee mixed together... In occasional rites and in acts of Kama Siddhi the great discharge without doubt and most certainly is what one should do in Kula Agama... One should always consume the physical blood and semen. This, 0 Dearest One, is the oblation of the Yoginis and Siddhas" (Chapter 8).

"Dearest One, a Brahmin goes to heaven by endless washing of the feet and mouth, whereas one who repeatedly makes a forehead mark of Kundagola or Udbhava menses can destroy various illnesses such as leprosy and smallpox, and is free from all disease in the same way that a sepent sloughs its skin." (Ibid, Chapter 8).

"Blood is the female (Vama) elixir—mixed with wine and semen it is the Absolute itself!" (Ibid, Chapter 18).

Other Kaula Tantras deal with the subject of menstrual blood in very plain terms. Matrikahheda Tantra (English translation Sothis-Weirdglow 1973) describes the different types of menstrual blood: "Shri Shankara said—The first menses appearing in a woman who has lost her virginity gives rise to Svayambhu blood. In a maiden born of a married woman and begotten by another man, 0 Auspicious One, that which arises is Kunda Menses—the substance which causes any desire to be granted. Deveshi, the maiden begotten by a widow gives rise to Gola Menses, which subdues gods. The menses arising in the first period after a virgin becomes a wife is the All Bewildering Svapushpa." (Matrikahheda Tantra, Chapter 5).

The very first chapter of the Tantra deals with a substance called shambal, which is described by the commentary as a wife's menstrual discharge. This substance allows the Tantrik adept to perform various sorts of alchemy.

Vajrayana is a cult of Tibetan Lamaism. In a tantra called Chandramaharoshana (Harvard Oriental Series, 1976) the Lord Chandramaharoshana is made to say:

"Optionally he (the yogin) may secrete or not secrete, having his mind solely on pleasure. If he does, he should lick the Lotus, on the knees. And he should eat with his tongue the white and red of the Lotus. And he should inhale it through a pipe in the nose, to increase his power." (Chandramaharoshana, Ch.6 v.150.)

There are many points of contact between the Vajrayana and Indian Kaula cults. Matsyendranath, alleged author of Kaula Jnana Nirnay, is also by some accounts the founder of both Vajrayana and Kaula. He is also the human progenitor of the Nath Siddha tradition.

Kaulavali Nirnayah (Agamanusandhana Samiti, Calcutta nd), edited by Sir John Woodroffe, is a digest or compendium of other Kaula tantras. One of the works it deals with is the Shandramaharoshana Tantra (see above). Summarising Chapter 18, Woodroffe quotes the Tantra as stating:

"...there are people who regard semen and menstrual fluid with disgust, but they forget that the body by which they hope to attain Liberation is composed of these two forms of matter, that the marrow, bone and tendons have come from the father and the skin, flesh and blood from the mother. It further says that there is no reason for man's disgust for excreta or urine, for these are nothing but food or drink which has undergone some change and contains living creatures and the Brahman substance is not absent therefrom...All things are pure. It is one's mentality which is evil." (Ibid, Introduction pp 19-20).

Svecchachara

This Sanskrit word means a spiritual state in which an individual may act according to her or his own Will. As she or he is Shiva incarnate there can be no morality, only amorality—freedom from the rules of the Pashu or beast who is fettered by the mind:

"Bhairava said—Listen Vira Chamunda to the characteristics of vessels and the way of acting. One may be a child, or a madman, or a king, or like one in a swoon, or like an independent being, or a Lord Hero, or like one who teaches Veda for gain. The way to be is to act howsoever one Wills, Dearest!" (Kaula Jnana Nirnaya, Chapter 8).

The Yoni Tantra advocates this course in Chapter 7, stating that the ordinary rules for worship are suspended for one who follows Mahacina practice. This word Mahacina is often encountered in Kaula tantras—it seems to refer to the the regions bordering Tibet and China. One following this path is free of all distinctions as she or he is one with Shiva and Shakti, and may act therefore according to Will.

Sveccacharya is the way of the Avadhoot, that is to say a person beyond any qualifications or distinctions. The type and symbol of this way of acting is the Guru figure of India, Dattatreya. The Avadhoot is always in a blissful state, one with Shiva. According to Woodroffe in his introduction to Kaulavali Nirnayah:

"It is very difficult for any one to know his true nature. When alone he is like one mad, dumb or paralysed and when in the society of men he sometimes behaves like a good man, sometimes like a wicked one, and on occasions he behaves like a demon. But the Yogi is always pure whatever he may do and by his touch everything becomes pure." (Introduction p. 22)

These descriptions of an Avadhoot echo the Mala or chain mantra of Dattatreya, in which he is described as "Madman, Child, Devil."

In the Avadhuta Upanishad (Sannyasa Upanishads, Adyar 1978) Dattatreya is questioned by Samkriti:

Venerable Lord, who is an Avadhoota? What is his condition? What is his characteristic? What is his worldly existence? [Dattatreya then replies] The Avadhoot is so called as he has discarded worldly ties, and he is the essence of the sentence 'Thou art That'...His worldly existence consists in moving about freely, with or without clothes. For them there is nothing righteous or unrighteous, nothing holy or unholy. (ppl-3).

For him there is no such thing as sin or virtue. The ethical system of sin and virtue is to protect the minds of the worldly, since the mind is the measure of all things and all things last only a moment. (Chandramaharoshana Ch. 8 v. 60).

Again in the text of the Nath Siddhas:

Bad smells and perfume one should sense as equal. Just as a lotus petal in water is without stain, so a Yogi is unmarred by merit or sin. In one in whom this mental disposition has blossomed there is no difference between killing a Brahmin or the Ashvamedha sacrifice, nor is there any difference between bathing in all the sacred waters or contact with barbarians (Mlecchas). (Kaula Jnana Nirnaya, Chapter 11).

Reverence For Women

The Kaulas regarded women Gurus very highly, and there are many examples of Yoginis or female Tantriks. In the Yoni Tantra, Chapter 7 we find:

Women are jewels, women are life, women are, truly, jewels.

This sentence is echoed in many other tantras such as Shakti Samgama Tantra, Devirahasya and elsewhere. A woman is the Goddess:

One should worship carefully a woman or a maiden, as she is Shakti, sheltered by the Kulas. One should never speak harshly to maidens or women. (KIN Ch.23)

In Kaula every woman is thought of as a manifestation of the Goddess. No man may raise his hand, strike or threaten a woman. When she is naked, men must kneel and worship her as the Goddess. She has equal rights with men on all levels. ('Occult World of a Tantrik Gum', Dadaji in Values Vol.IX)

In both Kulachudamani Tantra (Azoth Magazine nos. 20-24) and the Brihad Nila Tantra the Kaula is instructed to recite a mantra inwardly whenever he sees a woman.

Women are heaven; women are Dharma; and women are the highest penance. Women are Buddha; women are the Sangha; and women are the perfection of Wisdom. ('Chandamaharoshana' Ch.8 v. 30)

Kamarupa

Although the Yoni Tantra seems to hail from Cooch Bihar (Kocha), many of the Kaula Tantras are set at Kamarupa, a word which means 'Body of Sexuality'. In Puranic legend this place is the spot at which the Yoni of the Goddess fell to earth after it had been sliced up into 50 parts by the Discus of Vishnu.

According to legend, Matsyendranath, founder of Kaula and Natha traditions, pounded the Kaula Shastra6 at Kamarupa. The famous temple of Kamakhya in Gauhati is illustrated below. [Sr. C.F. Note —Actually, not. If you happen to be the proud possessor of this illustration, or one just like it, why not send it along to me in care of the SL and perhaps I'll send you a valuable prize.] This form of Goddess is hymned in the Kalika Purana, and in very many Varna or Kaula tantras:

It is said that female magicians knowing Yoga dwell at Kamakhya Pitha. If one joins with one of these one obtains Yogini Siddhi (KJN Ch. 16)

The Ten Mahavidyas

These are enumerated in the third chapter of Yoni Tantra as Kali, Tara, Sodashi Chinnamastaka, Bhagalamjkhi, Matangi, Bhuvaneshvari, Mahalakshmi and associated with the diffent parts of the female Yoni. This list is slightly different from that in Todala Tantra (Kalika Magazine Nos.1-4).

A Mahavidya is a Great Mantra, and these ten seem to be mainly Bengali forms. Sodashi is identical with Tripurasundari. Tara has close affinities with the Tibetan Tara. Reference should be make to Rituals of Kalika (Sothis Weirdglow, 1983) for details of this great Goddess.

FIRST PATALA

Seated on the peak of Mount Kailasa, the God of Gods, the Guru of all Creation, was questioned by Durga-Of-The-Smiling-Face, Naganandini.

Sixty-four Tantras have been created, O Lord. Tell me, Ocean of Compassion, about the foremost of these.

Mahadeva said —Listen, Dearest Parvati, to this very secret one. You have wanted to hear this 10,000,000 times. O Beautious One, it is because of your feminine nature that you continually ask me.

You should conceal this by every effort. Parvati, there is Mantra Pitha, Yantra Pitha and Yoni Pitha. Amongst these the foremost is certainly the Yoni Pitha, revealed to you from affection.

Listen closely, Naganandini! Hari, Hara and Brahma—the Gods of Creation, Maintenance and Destruction—all originate in the Yoni.

A person should not worship the Yoni if he has not the Shakti Mantra. This initiation and Mantra is the Deliverer from Hell.

I am Mrityunjaya, beloved of your Yoni, O Devi. O Surasundari, I always worship Durga in my heart lotus. This liberates the mind from distinctions such as Divya and Vira. O Lady Goddess, worshipping in this way Liberation is placed within a person's grasp.

The worshipper of the Yoni should prepare the Shakti Mantra. He gains wealth, poesy, wisdom, omniscience. He becomes the 4-faced Brahma for one hundred million Aeons.

What is the use of talking! To speak of this avails naught. [Ed. Note: Yes, indeedy!] If a person worships with menstrual flowers he also has power over Fate. Similarly, having done much puja in this way he may become Liberated.

The devotee should place a Shakti in a circle who is wanton, beautiful, devoid of shame and disgust, charming by nature, supremely alluring or beautiful. Finally, after giving her vijaya, the devotee should worship her with utmost devotion.

On his left he should place her, and should worship her hair-adorned Yoni.

On the edges of the Yoni the devotee should place sandal and beautiful blossoms. There, indrawing the Goddess, he should do Jiva Nyasa using mantra, having given her wine and drawing a half moon using vermilion. Having put sandal on her forehead the devotee should place his hands on her breasts.

Having recited the mantra 108 times in her arms, Loved One, the devotee should caress both breasts, having previously kissed her on the cheek. The mantra should be recited 108 or 1008 times in the Yoni mandala.

After having recited the mighty mantra he should recite the hymn of great devotion.

At the time of worship the Guru should not be present. I am the worshipper. If the Guru is present there is no fruit, of this there is no doubt.

The worshipper, using great efforts, should make the result of the puja over to the Guru. Having made three offerings with hands full of flowers he should bow again to his own Guru. The wise man should by every means offer to his Guru, putting the hands together in the sign of obeisance.

Having done the Yoni Puja according to these methods the devotee attains whatever is desired—of this there is no doubt. The fruit of this is life and enhanced vitality, having done Puja to the Great Yoni—which delivers one from the Ocean of Misery.

At the time of worship the Guru should not be present. I am the worshipper. If the Guru is present there is no fruit, of this there is no doubt.

The worshipper, using great efforts, should make the result of the puja over to the Guru. Having made three offerings with hands full of flowers he should bow again to his own Guru. The wise man should by every means offer to his Guru, putting the hands together in the sign of obeisance.

Having done the Yoni Puja according to these methods the devotee attains whatever is desired—of this there is no doubt. The fruit of this is life and enhanced vitality, having done Puja to the Great Yoni—which delivers one from the Ocean of Misery.

SECOND PATALA

Devi said —God of Gods, Natha of all the Cosmos, cause of Creation, Maintenance, and Destruction, without you there is no Father just as without me there is no Mother. You have declared the ultimate way of Yoni Puja through sexual intercourse. Which types of Yonis should be worshipped, and which are auspicious?

Mahadeva said —The Actress, the Kapalika, the Prostitute, the Washer Girl, the daughter of a barber, the Brahmin girl, the daughter of a Shudra, the little cowsmaid and the flowergirl—these are the nine renowned Maidens. Otherwise any maiden if she is artful with wanton eyes [is suitable]. The devotee should worship the mother's Yoni and should have intercourse with all Yonis. He may have intercourse with any woman between the ages of twelve and sixty.

Daily he should worship the Yoni using the Five Tattvas. Through the doctrine of Seeing the Yoni he gains the merit of bathing at 10,000 sacred sites.

The forehead mark should be made from the Yoni Tattva and dress should be of the Kula type. The type of material used for sitting on and the worship should be of the Kula form.

Firstly, in intercourse, the purified worshipper should draw the Shakti to himself by her hair, and should place his lingam in her hand. The Lingam Puja and the Yoni Puja should be done according to the rules. Beloved One, red powder and sandal should be smeared on the lingam.

The Lingam should be inserted into the Yoni and there should he vigorous intercourse. He who employs this method attains the Highest Essence. The devotee would worship employing the Yoni Tattva, of the form of Yoni, the Deluder of the World, at night when it is Full Moon, at a crossroads, O Devi.

Having gone to a cremation ground, offering cooked fish, milk, food, and meat, he becomes like Kubera, the God of Wealth.

A yantra of yoni shape should be drawn on the ground and the mantra recited. Having read the Kavacha, Devi, a person should recite the 1000 Names. He becomes a son of Kalika, and Liberated. Having offered meat-food in a deserted place, and having repeated the mantra and hymns a man becomes a Lord of Yoga.

A person becomes Shiva on Earth having seen the Yoni full of menses after having bathed and having recited the mantra 108 times. One should recite the mantra having offered both one's own semen and the Yoni flowers.

Cooked fish, hen's egg, mouse-flesh, buffalo-flesh, human-flesh, wine, meat, and ground cereal should be offered at night.

Wherever this great place [of offering] is, therein plays the Highest Essence. One should be naked, with dishevelled hair, sitting in a cross-legged position. At all times and everywhere the mantra should be recited when in the great Yoni. One should worship the essence of Devi, the Shakti in the form of a Shakti. Doing this a man attains the four aims of mankind—Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha.

Sadhakas should together at night offer using wine and meat. By every effort a sadhaka should have intercourse in the Yoni, having previously caressed the Shakti's breasts.

The Shakti becomes the Goddess, if loving is done in the Viparita fashion. Instantly the sadhaka becomes regenerated and fully alive by using the water from washing Yoni and Lingam.

Having worshipped the Great Yoni, according to rule, one should make an offering. The water of the Yoni is of three kinds, and one should offer it to the Shakti. O Mahadevi, having mixed the water with wine the purified sadhaka should drink it.

The Supreme Woman should be pleased by offering clothes, perfumes and jewels. One should worship the Vidya whilst in the Yoni and Lingam, at nighttime, according to the ritual injunction.

The highest sadhaka should mix in water the effusion from the Yoni and Lingam, and sipping this Amrita, nourish himself with it.


The Yoni Tantra, Part III
Part I, II, III, IV, V
Translated by Sri Lokanath


The following are the third and forth patalas of the eight that comprise the Yoni Tantra. This translation is credited to Sri Lkanath Maharaj. See SL Vol. II, no. 4 for his introduction to this material, which will appear in full over the course of Vol. III. A look at the Mahanirvana Tantra, edited and translated by Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodruffe) should prove valuable, as the introduction alone provides both the context and definition of terms used in this text. —Sor. Filiae Chaosiae

Third Patala

Now I will speak, Great Lady. Listen very attentively! By every effort this should be concealed, never reveal it. Revealing it (causes) lack of siddhi. Revealing it causes death. By revealing it mantra is destroyed. It could be that revealing it (causes one) to be torn to pieces.

The miraculous Yoni Tattva Tantra is the best of all Tantras. Because of affection this very hidden Tantra is revealed. The only evil in sexual intercourse is disgust for blood and semen. He who mixes them with wine is the discriminating one in worship.

How can one be wicked on account of the Shakti Mantra? Having worshipped the Great Yoni the magician should worship with the flesh of goats, sheep, men, deer, mongoose, buffalo, elephants, cows, jackals, lions, horses and tortoises in devotional mood.

10,000,000 Kulas arise using the Yorn doctrine. If one worships the Yoni there is equivalence to the Sun and the Moon. Should one use Yoni Tattva oblation never again is one born on Earth. One is born in due course in wondrous Devi Loka. There resides the powerful magician, the Great Lord, conjoined with his Shakti. One should do all acts, japa and so forth, employing the excellent Great Conch Rosary.

Without the 5 Tattvas what can be achieved by men? All is without result and one may fall into hell and (be) baked in pots 'til the end of the world.

The sin acquired in a myriad of births is immediately destroyed if one should worship, offering into the mouth of the Yoni. Combining semen with menses or Svapuhspa menses and taking this in the hand one should carefully offer it into the Yoni.

One becomes a son of Kalika, and therefore renowned. At the Yoni base is Devi, and in the Yoni Naganandini. Kali and Tara are in the Yoni Chakra, and Chinnamastaka in the hair. Bagalamukhi and Matangi are on the edge of theYoni. In the Yoni aperture are Mahalakshmi, Shodashi, and Bhuvaneshvari.When worshipping the Yoni one certainly worships Shakti.

One should worship giving bali of birds and other living creatures and with blood. For the magician who says "Aim Aim" at the time of worship the Yoni is auspicious and gives both Enjoyment and Liberation. A Yogin is not an enjoyer (Bhogin) and, similarly, a Bhogin is not a Yogin. If one is aYoni worshipper one is a Kaula, a being who has both Yoga and Enjoyment (Bhoga). Without worship of the Yoni all worship is vain, 0 Durga!

In the center of the Yoni is the foremost one, Chandali, Lady of Hosts. Through this type of worship one becomes my equal, most certainly.

What use are meditations, reciting mantras, giving gifts, Kula nectars? Without worship of the Yoni all are fruitless, 0 Durga.

If one is incapable of giving whatever is to be offered in my sadhana one may exclusively be devoted to Yoni Puja. A magician should worship with clothes and jewels. Having worshipped the great Yoni he should then go into the circle.

Prostrating oneself like a stick one should then show the Yoni Mudra. Durga becomes pleased with a magician who has devotion for the Yoni.

What use is there of many words? The Yoni which has bled is suitable for worship. One should not worship aYoni which has never bled. From worship of a Yoni which has never bled there is loss of siddhi on every occasion, 0 Devi.

Fourth Patala

All japa and so forth is to be done according to the rules of Mahachina. The characteristics of Yoni worship are thus declared by me to you, 0 Devi.

Although to be kept secret, it is revealed from affection for you, Lady of the Gods. In the country of Kocha near Yonigart on the west side of the Ganges is the renowned Madhavi. Having gone there one may gain the spiritual vision of the Yoni, 0 Maheshvari.

Here, 0 Devi, every night I became exclusively devoted to the worship of the Yoni. Practising religious mendicancy I go there always.

There is no Yoni on Earth resembling the beautifully rounded Yoni of Madhavi, and the firmness of her breasts.

Using this method when worshipping Her causes Shivo'ham. Listen, Parvati! Krishna, having worshipped Radha's Yoni became God Krishna. Shri Rama Janaki Natha worshipped Sita's Yoni. O Sundari, having killed Ravana and his clan he went to Ayodhya City and took there a beautiful residence.

Vishnu, Brahma, the Saints (up to Braqhma's hairtuft) and Myself are all born from the Yoni.

What knowledge equals the magnificence of the Yoni Tattva in the Three Worlds? Without the five Tattvas of wine, meat, fish, grain, and intercourse, all is fruitless, Devi.

Of all things the highest is Veda, and better than Veda is Vaishnava. Better than Vaishnava is Shaiva, and better than Shaiva is Dakshina. Superior to Dakshina is Vama, and better than Vama is Siddhanta. Higher than Siddhanta is the Kaula in whom is desire for the Yoni like a sun shining in the sky or a veritable Meru to mustard seeds.

The preeminence of the Kula is sung of in all the Tantras. By the power of good fortune one is knower of Kula. Using suitable foods one should please and worship by every effort. The best magician is exclusively devoted to Yoni Puja.

Using this revealed method one becomes accomplished, there is no doubt. According to the speech of Pashus there exists only the sexual intercourse of beasts. If Daivas there is exclusive devotion to the doctrine of the Yoni, Great Goddess. Making a forehead mark of Yoni Tattva one becomes pure.

In this book feeding Kumaris and feeding Kulinas are the two chief things. O Durga, there is no doubt about this.

Within a Shakta, outwardly a Shaiva, in gatherings at Vaishnava—in various forms the Kaulas wander on Earth. Alone in the family lineage of a thousand generations is a Kulina pure, 0 Naganandini.

Whosoever washes the feet of a Kulina purifies his home and body, most certainly. In whichever country a Kulina lusting after the Yoni is born—that place is worshipped by the Gods Brahma,Vishnu, and Shiva. Giving to a Kulina gives endless gifts in return. Offering into the hands of a Pashu is fruitless in every way.

It is impossible for me to speak of the magnificence of the Kulina! Whoever satisfies a Kulina is liberated by 10,000,000 Kulas. I bestow Grace only via Kula Yoga, this is without doubt. Of the four Ashramas of Man the state of being an Avadhuta is the greatest, 0 Devi.

I achieved the status of Mahadeva through Kula Yoga and by exclusive devotion to the worship of Yoni of a maiden or a beautiful woman one should worship the Yoni of a sister or of a female pupil. Daily one should worship the Yoni, otherwise one should utter the mantra. Without Yoni Puja one should not do useless Puja, Dearest. Otherwise one may worship on Earth by reciting (a mantra).

The Yoni Tantra, Part IV
Part I, II, III, IV, V
Translated by Sri Lokanath

Now for the fifth and sixth patelas. Oh, slow as a turtle, soft as a hummingbird's tongue. This translation is credited to Sri Lokanath Maharaj. See SL Vol. II, no.4 for his introduction to this material, which will conclude with the fifth and final installment in the next [Scarlet Letter]. For more information about tantra, the works of Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodruffe) and Lillian Silburn form an excellent base of information from the perspective of the initiated westerner. Informationally, the best bang for your book buck right now has got to be Passionate Enlightenment: Women In Tantric Buddhism by Miranda Shaw which is not only carefully researched (primary sources) and beautifully written but has the most comprehensive modern bibliography on the subject that I have ever seen. Many synaptic returns, dear ones —Sor. Filiae Chaosiae

FIFTH PATELA

The Guru is clearly Shiva, and his partner is the true form of the Goddess. The Kaulika goes to hell if he has sexual intercourse with her. The best kind of magician should have intercourse with all other female's Yonis. On whosoever's forehead the Yoni Tattva is visible there too cluster Devas, Demons, Yakshas and the 14 Worlds.

If the twice-born Kulina should do Her mantra during the Shradda (rite) his ancestors dwelling in heaven give him results, O Sundari. Intoxicated by bliss, they sing and hymn his praises.

In the mutual rubbing of the Lingam and Yoni there is great magic. The highest thing in recitation (of mantra) and magic is the outflow of semen and feminine effusion.

The mighty magician, the doer of the injunction, should offer the augmented substance to the Yoni region having mixed the semen and Yoni Tattva together.

From the lotus feet of the woman the Grace of the Goddess showers down. At the time of magic one should abandon any other method.

The wise man, following the rules of Kaula Shastra, should caress that Yoni. If one should do puja of a mother's Yoni one should prepare it. Having worshipped it according to rule one should not have intercourse. One should have intercourse with the Yoni that bleeds.

If by good fortune one is the partner of a Brahmin girl one should worship her Yoni Tattva, Dearest. Otherwise one may worship other Yonis.

In Pashu Initiation without the Five Tattvas all is fruitless. One should resort to a Kulaguru initiating one into Shakti by every effort, O Durga.

If a magician should consume the Yoni Tattva while being Pashu Initiated, his initiation and his rules cause black magic.

Therefore, by every effort, one should resort to a Kalina Guru. If one wishes to do Yoni puja one should resort to a Kulina Guru. Only then does a Yoni bestow grace— like Sita's vagina for Ramachandra, and your Yoni for me.

If one should worship a Yoni adorned with hair, one becomes like a king. All of one's acts become all fruitful, there is no doubt.

If one should mark oneself with a forehead mark of Yoni flowers one becomes very wealthy. O Devi, marked with red in this fashion one dwells in the Heaven of Durga.

Parvati said—Ocean of Compassion, by what method should one worship the Yoni, which is the essence of the Cosmos? If you or a magician should worship the Yoni, how does it bestow grace? Speak of this to me! I want to hear all of this because of my great curiosity.

Mahadeva said—The magician who wishes to worship the Yoni, which is the form of the Cosmos, should cause an erection and should insert it into that thing which is Shakti Herself.

The vagina is Mahamaya, and the penis is Sadashiva. Worshipping these one becomes liberated whilst still living, there is no doubt. One should offer animal sacrifice, flowers, and so forth. If one is incapable of this one should worship with wine, O Durga.

One should do pranayama and my 6 limbed worship in the region of the Yoni, Dearest One. Having recited the mantra 100 times at the base of the Yoni one should rub the Lingam and the Yoni together.

The manner of proceeding for all magicians is thus declared by me. O Deveshi, one should never reveal this tantra! One should not give it to another's disciple, nor to the undevoted. The Yoni Tantra is revealed out of love of you, O Mahadevi.

SIXTH PATELA

If one should gaze at a Yoni at bathing time the life of a magician becomes fruitful. There is no doubt of this, Deveshi!

One should look at one's partner's Yoni, at another woman's Yoni, the Yoni of a maiden—or, in the absence of a maiden's Yoni, one should look reverentially at the Yoni of a female pupil.

One should never worship the Yoni in front of Pashus. Employing the Yoni Magic method one definitely becomes like Vishnu—of this there is no doubt.

Whosoever practices this is praised by the Gods and Demons in Heaven and the Underworld. Only one who acts with Vira Magic is liberated from sorrow.

This well balanced magic is revealed from love for you. If one who worships the Yoni Tattva enters a dispute, having conquered all his enemies becomes ultimately victorious, O Durga. What is the point of bathing in the Ganges? What need is there to resort to sacred places? There is nothing equal to devotion to the Yoni. Acting otherwise is useless.

O, Deveshi, even with my five mouths I am unable to speak of the magnificence of the Yoni!

Listen, Naganandini! By your Yoni's grace I became Mahadeva!

Whichsoever magician would have intercourse in a woman's Yoni becomes liberated from the great unhappiness which is the terrible ocean of Samsara. What point is there of many words in this matter? Listen, Parvata-Sundari! There is nothing to be praised in the world more worthy of praise than the Yoni Tattva.

Without it, O Devi, how is it possible for Shiva or Vishnu to speak? How could I be capable of wickedness? How could I be capable of anything, O Mother Durga? How is it possible for me to describe your great receptacle of riches?

Devi said—Mahadeva, Natha of the whole Cosmos, Cause of Creation, Maintenance, and Destruction, the acts relating to Vira Magic have been heard from your mouth. The various rules of the usual kind of magic have been heard. How can one be an unbeliever if he has heard this declared by you, O Deva? Share this sacred trust Mahadeva! Remove any doubts I may have.

Mahadeva said—Listen Most Beautiful Parvati Naganandini! Listen with great devotion. Listen attentively to that which one should never reveal even at the risk of one's own life.You should always conceal it as if it were your own Yoni, O deveshi!

The secret I reveal to you is true, true, there is no doubt. Practicing it, one is never immersed in the Ocean of Being. The Yoni is Mahamaya Herself, and the Lingam is the form of Sadashiva. Oblation should be with their effusion and with wine and flesh, Sundari.

One should bring together the Yoni and the Lingam and should worship the Tattva, O Sundari. In this certain thing one should place oneself and give everything to Shakti. One should satisfy using the Five Tattvas in the form of the vagina, which is the whole Cosmos. Revealing this one commits Brahmacide, O Deveshi!

O Durga, this sacred trust is known to be of very great merit. One gains siddhi and liberation from this sacred trust. Unless one knows this sacred trust one certainly goes to hell, Deveshi. Yoni magic is the greatest of all magic.

If one should worship the Yoni, having enjoyed and drunk one is freed from the defects of 10 million births, which are destroyed instantly.

Liberation is achieved via enjoyment. Happiness is gained through enjoyment. Therefore, by every effort, a magician should become an enjoyer. The wise man should always avoid blame, disgust, or shame of the Yoni. Unless one worships the Yoni by the method of Kulachara, even 100,000 acts of magic are useless.

If one should lick the elixir at the edge of the Yoni, evil in one's body or in one's house is certainly destroyed. What point is there of bathing in the Ganges or in other holy waters? In this matter relating to the powerful magician who always worships the vagina, what use is there of many words, Dearest?

Listen, O One-Dear-To-Me-As-Life-Itself. This magic of magicians is the best of all methods. Unless one does magic with the Five Tattvas (and not just Four) all is fruitless. Unless one uses the Fifth, one is not a Shakta having both happiness and liberation. Unless one uses the wine of Shakti all becomes fruitless.

One should drink the leftovers of both the Shakti and the Hero. Having done this, and having worshipped the Mahayoni always, and having enjoyed and having drunk, O Maheshani, one should eat inside the circle. One should take a rosary made of tulsi and do recitation in a temple of Hari.

After reciting the mantra and various narrations and lesser narrations one should then recite the best stories of Shri Hari. Hari is described as being the sum-total of all beings. One should slay beasts in that place [?].

This is the quintessential secret of magic; by practicing it one becomes wealthy. One should not do this most excellent magic in front of Pashus, O Parvati.

If one should worship the Yoni bowing thrice with a flower, those offerings destroy all karmas, and there is nothing unattainable in the Three Worlds.

The Yoni Tantra, Part V
Part I, II, III, IV, V
Translated by Sri Lokanath


The Seventh Patala

Now I speak of the ultimate magic of heroes, 0 Maheshani. Whichsoever magician knows this becomes liberated whilst living. The essence of the Divya is divinity; the chief element in a Vira is strong-mindedness.

In whatever country a Vira resides that country is worshipped by the gods. One may gain the fruit of bathing in 10 million sacred waters by seeing a Vira. Having offered water into die hand of a Vira one becomes liberated by a host of Kulas.

If one should please a Vira, what is there in the Three Worlds which cannot be achieved? The time when Viras recite mantras is better than any other time.

The master magicians ('best sadhakas') should recite manta within the Yoni at a place where there is a Shiva Linga, at the root of a Bilva, in the cremation ground, in an isolated spot, or in a house. The best of all food one should worship with is that filling one's own (Shakti's) womb. Unless one uses wine and flesh one dies speedily, 0 Devi.

Therefore, having consumed and having drunk one should then consume (Yoni Tattva) on Earth. Of all food one should worship this food fearlessly. O Maheshani, sexual intercourse in every kind of Yoni is widely praised.

Always one should smear on one's forehead a line of menstrual blood or sandal paste or semen. O Durga, for Viras this is the core of true bliss.

Now I declare the magic which gives results above every other kind of magic. For bathing and so forth, purification, summons, recitation, mental worship, oblation—any time is good. There is no such thing as an inauspicious time. There is no difference as to whether it is day or night nor whether it is the 14th day of the waning Moon nor whether it is the Twilight Time.

In the matter of robes, seat, place, house, bodily contact and so forth one should maintain internal purity—here one should not be dualistic.

There are no rules relating to direction or time, nor rules relating to place. Also there are no restrictions relating to the best time for recitations, nor for recitation of mantra, nor the time for worship, nor rules relating to animal sacrifice.

One should never make distinctions relating to women and should refrain from dualism in the magic of women. The magician should go to a woman and should touch and look at her. Having fed her one should recite the mantra and consume the substance according to one's desire. Thus are declared the characteristics in acts of Vira Magic according to one's own True Will (Sveccha).

Women are divine, women are life, women are—truly—jewels. One should always have intercourse with a woman and should meditate, whether she is one's own woman or not. This which has been spoken of to you is the All Self or Being Essence concealed in all tantras. This injunction relating to Vira Siddhi has been revealed from love for you.

At the time of consuming the substance firstly one should offer it to one's Shakti. Otherwise—at first one should cast water into the vagina. Having gone to a deserted cremation ground the magician and his Shakti should have sexual intercourse after having enjoyed food and reciting the mantra.

Now listen to the time when the semen-menses is emitted, 0 Parvati-Sundari. If one should worship the Yoni Tattva, making a forehead mark of it, all defects and evils of 100 births are destroyed instantly.

The mantrin should recite in an old house, in a place where ghosts abound, or in a deserted place. At the risk of one's life one should not show it to Pashus!

Vain is Vira Magic without wine, useless is it without sexual intercourse. Unless employing the Pancha Tattva, 0 Durga, a Vira fails on this planet.

For this reason, having consumed and having drunk, the mantrin should recite the Great Mantra. This magic of Viras is the best of all magic, Dear Goddess!

What point is there of 100,000 acts of Divya or Vira magic? What point to 100,000,000 recitations or 100 ritual preparations of the mantra? What use in going to 100,000 holy bathing places? What point to gifts or self-mortification?

Devoid of vagina, all are equally fruitless, 0 Maheshani! Using the Yoni Puja technique one attains one's share of all magic. From oblation with Yoni Tattva, the ancestors reside in heaven.

One should always caress a nubile Yoni! If one should divert oneself in the urgent dance, having prepared the cavity of the Maha Yoni, then one is liberated from defects and stains of all births by the hosts of Kulas.

If a devoted person of a contemplative mind should specifically worship the maiden Yoni of a beautiful female pupil with scent and flower; then having enjoyed happiness here on Earth he comes to dwell in Devi Loka.

In the absence of scent and flower one should do the magic with wine. At the time of magic, 0 Deveshi, he would do Vishnu magic, Vishnu nyasa then recite praise.

The Eighth Patala

The Kaulika Natha at the time of Vira-magic knows Her (his Shakti) to be Urvashi, who is Womankind in the Three Worlds. Unless one employs sexual intercourse there is never liberation, whether from Shastras, Shrutis, Smriti, Puranas and so forth, created by Me. Listen, O-One-As-Dear-As-Life of the destruction of the mental disposition of Pashus. One should worship a nubile Yoni in a highly ecstatic way.

Whosoever in the Kali Yuga should with supreme devotion recite (the mantra) specifically towards the Yoni—which is the Core of the Cosmos—for him is Liberation within reach.

Amongst thousands of magicians and tens of millions of worshippers fortunate are they who do Kali-magic.

Kali is the Mother of the Universe and of all Shastras, quite certainly. By remembering Kali, one is liberated from the fetters of the Pashu.

Having recited the great mantra of Kali one becomes Kali's son, there is no doubt. This is true, true, true without question!

Just as for Kali so for the Vidyas and methods of Tripura, Sodashi, Bhuvaneshvari, China-Tara, Maha Lakshmi, Matangi, Sundari, Bhairavi, Dakshina, and Tarini. Success cannot be achieved save with the method of China (Achara).

Whatever mantra one is initiated in, this is the best method. Without this sacred trust one becomes unsuccessful and therefore is again reborn.

That which is written here in the Yoni Tantra all sadhakas should do according to their own wills.

O, Mahashani, one should meditate on oneself as being absorbed in the Yoni Chakra, with Yoni on one's mind, Yoni in one's ears and one's eyes. All magic is vain unless with the Yoni, O Mighty Lady! Therefore one should reject other magic and do Yoni Puja. Unless devoted to the Guru there is no siddhi, O Maheshani.
